Motorola VIP1853 IPTV Set-Top DVR


Motorola Mobility UK Ltd introduced the Motorola VIP1853 — an IP set-top with a 'click-in' Digital Video Recording (DVR) module. The Motorola VIP1853 was designed to reduce set-top box deployment costs for operators without compromising on performance by enabling them to choose the DVR capacity for set-tops.

With the Motorola VIP1853, service providers can market a set-top that can be easily upgraded for customers wanting to add DVR capability to their basic box or wanting to expand their recording capacity with an additional or larger capacity module. The flexible design of the Motorola VIP1853 offers a choice of DVR capacity — it has an 8GB DVR module that supports trick play/pause functionality, and hard drive capacity can be increased to 160, 320 or 500GB for full featured DVR functionality.

This latest addition to Motorola's line of high-performance, IP set tops, comes in a sleek, compact design and by optimizing the feature set and employing an efficient mechanical design, Motorola has achieved an extremely cost-effective solution. In addition, the Motorola VIP1853 has low power consumption thereby helping to minimize its impact on the environment.

The Motorola VIP1853 works on the same hardware platform and runs on the same software as the highly successful Motorola VIP19x3 and Motorola VIP1003 set tops and boasts an even higher performance level. It is compatible with Motorola KreaTV 4.2 or higher, Motorola's open software application framework designed to enable operators to deliver carrier-class IPTV services, while being able to easily add new functionality and services at any time. This allows the service provider to grow according to business needs and customer demands.

The Motorola VIP1853 is expected to be available for delivery globally from Q3 2011 and be launched by a major European operator by the end of 2011.
